Date new versions published                                                          September 2015

The review of the unit standards above was prompted by the outcomes of the mandatory reviews of qualifications.


The unit standards were reviewed and republished in May 2015 and were deemed as expiring with a last date for assessment of 31 December 2016.  This review was prompted by the outcomes of the mandatory review that took place as part of the targeted review of qualifications (TRoQ).


These unit standards contribute to a number of expiring qualifications and to ensure that no barriers to completion are created, the last date for assessment has been extended to 31 December 2018 to align with the last date for award of the expiring qualifications.


Main changes


·      The last date for assessment of the expiring standards was extended to 31 December 2018.
